Pequena Empresa, Excelente Negócio

Ontem apresentei a 80H, pequena gravadora que acredita na força da web para divulgar seus artistas. Pois bem, a MagnaTune vai além. Todo o conteúdo gerado por seus 280 contratatados é liberado sob licença CC.

Saca só o moderníssimo modelo de negócios.

Texto de abertura do site:

We're a record label. But we're not evil.
We call it "try before you buy." It's the shareware model applied to music. Listen to 349 complete MP3 albums we've picked (not 30 second snippets). We let the music sell itself, because we think that's the best way to get you excited by it.

Our selection is intentionally small: we never waste your time with mediocre music.
If you like what you hear, download an album for as little as $5 (you pick the price), or buy a real CD, or license our music for commercial use.

Artists keep half of every purchase. And unlike most record labels, our artists keep all the rights to their music. No major label connections and no venture capital.

We are not evil.
